how do you get the stock grill off? I tried everything...pulling it off with almost full strength and with screwdrivers trying to pry it off. Are there some latches or something? I want to take it off and customize it by cutting the horizontal stripes out and putting a mesh grill.
What does anybody think?

I used pliers to take it off, there are 4 clips that hold it in. Squeeze each clip with pliers from the back until they pop out :D

It should pop right off after the clips are released.

thanks everybody. I finally got it off after about 15 minutes of squeezing and prying at the clips.

grill enhancement

It will look good, but while you are in there you should paint the body colored radiator braces. All it takes is a $5 can of flat black paint, masking tape and a bunch of old newspapers. Then the beauty of your grill shines through and really adds some "depth" to the front end. Good luck!

That's exactly what i'm trying to do and i might put the GTR logo too.
Where did you get the mesh grill part from?
I've only found big pieces for bumpers for like $40 and i dont want to spend that much.

I went to home depot last night and bought a huge piece of mesh for $3. I had to fold it in half to get it in the car. And i bought a coping saw to cut the inside of the original grill out for $6.

Hey Niss200SXGTR, how did you get the mesh to fit so good in the frame?

Thanks for everybodys help.
